Pavilion of Work: Design

[Design Development]

The principle of the pavilion is for it to develop physical spaces that are as open and customisable as the digital spaces we work in. The pavilion can adapt and change configurations according to occupancy, use, context and activity, creating an elegant exterior form and spatially dynamic layers from within that combine to form the modifiable workspace.

Designed to recreate the child like enjoyment in climbing trees through the process of ascension, the stacking & rotation of layers attempts to evoke a playful and engaging space to work.







” The idea itself, even if not made visual, is as much a work of art as any finished product. All intervening steps –scribbles, sketches, drawings, failed works, models, studies, thoughts, conversations– are of interest.  Those that show the thought process of the artist are sometimes more interesting than the final product. ”   Lewitt, S.

Ironically, during the tutorial this week Toby and Ronnie expressed more interest in my development models with foam rather than the timber model shown above. Part of me knew this was going to be the case before entering the tutorial and even though there are qualities of timber pavilion I like, somewhere in the development process the spatial atmosphere, element of light & transparency and the performance aspect of the connected worker got lost in my vision for a TRADA timber pavilion. The question is now, how do I merge the two models and generate a pavilion that reflects both of  these designs?
